I just received this set and without opening the clear zippered bag, I saw a very poorly sewn patch that I could see would come apart instantly. I am in the process of returning it to Overstock. The appearance of the various patches is beautiful and I would have loved to have been able to use it, but alas, quality trumps beauty.
I was very excited when I ordered this product because it looked lovely on the website. However, once it came in the mail, I had immediate buyer's remorse. The colors are bright and vivid in person but the quality of this product is poor! The fact that this is a patchwork blanket allows the buyer to be disappointed repeatedly. All fabrics used are poor quality, look cheap and feel even cheaper. They also started unraveling almost immediately after putting this comforter on my bed. This leads me to another problem - the size. I purchased a "full/queen" size for my queen mattress, however it seems to be a better fit for a full size bed. It doesn't fully cover the length of the mattress and leaves only an inch or two of additional blanket on the width. Aesthetically, this is not desired because it won't fully cover my sheets so they spoke out and make the made bed look unattractive. Practically, if you share a bed, you will be fighting for full coverage of this blanket with your partner because it's not enough blanket for two. It also offers NO warmth at all, which might be a selling point if you live in the south, however I live in the Northeast and am currently using this comforter, a sheet, a light blanket and ANOTHER comforter to stay warm during the winter months, I have been very pleased with the quality of bedding that I've received from Overstock in the past in the same price range, however considering how cheaply this product is made; I feel it was really overpriced.
We've had this set for about a year. It's fun. It's pretty. And the stitching comes apart very easily. At first, I thought I could fix it in my spare time. But, it's kept falling apart to the point it's overwhelming. Perhaps this would work in a rarely used guest room. But, in a tween's room with three siblings and a dog, it's been a big disappointment.
This arrived very quickly and as described. The color is great and allows me to change accents in my room, which always match. As other's commented there were a few fly away strings; however they don't unravel the comforter when pulled. I was able to simply snip them off. I was reluctant at first thinking the length of the comforter would be too short, but it hangs just right. I've had this set for about 3 weeks now and I am so far very pleased with this item.
I had this less than a week. The patches fall apart. I never washed it. I made my daughters bed, and just from movement, it dissassembled. The colors are bright and beutiful, but the only way I'd purchase this would be for a wall hanging, and even then, it would probably fall apart.
I bought this for my mother's bed & we just love the bright beautiful colors. I have a friend who will be buying one as well because I sent her a picture! The only thing that I believe would help when displaying your add is to add that the skirt does not come with the comforter. I had one that matched & am using it! I wanted something with prime colors that was alive, brilliant that would bring a smile to my mother's lips. I succeeded!!!
I was trying to think of how to brighten Mimmom's room to get her out of a downward spiral. Then I was looking at bedding on Overstock.com and found a really nice and bright colored comforter. Mimmom liked the colors in this beautiful comforter and wanted the comforter for her room. I am usuaaly the one who likes the bright colors, but this comforter really caught Mimmom's eye. When the comforter arrived, mimmom's eyes really lit up and she said that the picture on the screen really didn't the colors in the comforter justice. Thank you Overstock.com for having such a huge selection of bedding and especially for this bright comforter!
Was a little leary because of previous unfavorable reviews, but loved the colors and took a chance. Glad I did! Colors are beautiful and only one or two loose threads which aren't a problem. Very soft! Even grandsons love these comforters and now call it the "Genie" room! I suspect Overstock pushed for better quality. Thanks!
